Lakeridge Health Request for Proposals

June 15th, 2011

Today we received information that Lakeridge Health Oshawa is seeking proposals for a mural in the new paediatrics department. Have a look below at all the details from LHO.

Building Today for Excellence Tomorrow

Lakeridge Health Oshawa (LHO) has a longstanding commitment to provide the best, most sensitive care to children in our community and across the Durham Region. As a designated Children’s Healthcare Centre, the Hospital provides many advanced services for newborns, infants, toddlers through to teens.  The current redevelopment and expansion project will increase the square footage of the existing Paediatrics space – increasing the number of beds so more children can get the care they need when they need it. Once completed, the Paediatrics Department will be newer, brighter and offer a more family-centered environment that is welcoming to patients, families and visitors.

Family-centered care has many benefits and is based on the understanding that family is the child’s primary source of strength and support.   This ultimately has a positive impact on parent and child, encouraging quicker recovery time and increasing the Hospital’s ability to meet our community’s paediatrics and surgical needs closer to home.


The Oshawa Hospital Foundation is soliciting through the Fair and Open Process for “Request for Proposal” (RFP) for the Paediatrics Program at Lakeridge Health Oshawa.
